Designed for the busy practitioner.

Designed for the busy practitioner, Geriatrics presents 97 alphabetically arranged topics covering all major concerns in geriatric rehabilitation ranging from age-related changes to end-of-life care. The first section reviews topics related to normal aging and assessment methods to measure systemic changes. The second section addresses common aging-associated diseases and disorders affecting relevant organ systems, including neurologic, musculoskeletal, rheumatologic, and cardiovascular problems and other key concerns such as functional decline, incontinence, and visual impairments. The last section highlights special considerations such as aging with a developmental disability, exercise, pain management, polypharmacy, and rehabilitation in various healthcare settings.

Taken together, the book catalogs the broad range of functional issues endemic in the elderly population and offers a quick reference guide for rehabilitation professionals providing high-quality clinical care to older patients.
